SHOT THE BLA (BLAH) – 2012
The concept of “Blah” is a thread throughout Eve Ariza’s oeuvre. “Blah” embodies both the constant miscommunication between humans and a threat towards truth. With the frightening recent advent of notions of “post-truth” and “fake news”, the artist’s combat against superficial discourses seems even more relevant. ( Miriam Ambatlle)

The concept of Blah ( BLA) is the thread of my artistic research. About blah blah blah … BLAH (BLA) TREATS THE QUESTION OF TRUTH. Bla refers to the (in)-communication and the (im)-possibilities of dialogue between beings of our species. The (im)-chances for dialogue between human beings are the centre of my research and my work. I see the impossibility of communication and frustration of a society gangrened by the system and a way to define where the material status, ideology and thought reside. As an artist, I raise a mockery of the Modern Oratory, not only political but also popular, and denounce at the same time hypocrisy and the weakness of a system that prefers the appearance of certain discourses as opposed to sincerity based on ethics.
